Aston Villa v Manchester United: Match in pictures

Manchester United’s 2022 hasn’t got off to the ideal start so far. Their two games have seen them play Aston Villa on both occasions.

They scraped through the sides’ FA Cup meeting last week before blowing a two-goal lead at Villa Park in the Premier League.

Whilst there is plenty to ponder for interim boss Ralf Rangnick, what about those players away from the club?

Over the summer, United sent a batch of players out on loan. And a handful of them were despatched to teams in the EFL as they look to continue their development.

Here, we look at how they got on during what was a busy weekend across the Championship and Leagues One and Two.

Teden Mengi

Teden Mengi is spending the second part of this season on loan at Birmingham

The United defender is finally enjoying some regular game time after joining Birmingham City until the end of the season.

James Garner

James Garner aided Nottingham Forest as they sealed a late win at Millwall

Garner played the full 90 minutes as Nottingham Forest sealed a last-gasp win at Millwall.

Lewis Grabban’s late goal pinched the points in a game where Garner again impressed. He showed off his repertoire of passes and also got involved with the dirty side of the game, helping out his defence.

It was another encouraging performance as Forest moved to within five points of the play-offs.

Di’Shon Bernard

Di’Shon Bernard received his eighth booking of the season in Hull’s defeat to Stoke – the joint-highest tally in the division

The on-loan Hull City defender enjoyed a torrid afternoon as Stoke City won 2-0 on Sunday.

It was a third successive defeat for the Tigers. Jacob Brown and Tom Ince notched the goals in an impressive win for the Potters.

But Bernard struggled against a lively attack and was handed a yellow card – his eighth of the campaign. That is the joint-highest…
